THE IMPORTANCE OF THE PROJECT
Montenegro, with its gorgeous Adriatic Sea, guarded by rivers with unique canyons, clear lakes, and proud mountains, will soon bring the coastline closer to the mountainous region in the most beautiful way possible.
The beauties of Montenegro are breathtaking for tourists and at first encounter, every traveler stays in love with Montenegro. It is a fact that Montenegro has significant tourism development potentials, which is why the Government of Montenegro places investments in infrastructure development in the Northern region in its strategic priorities of the country’s development.
The Government of Montenegro is working day-to-day to improve the infrastructure to ensure access to all ski resorts of our country. What is of special importance to the entire Bjelasica ski resort is the construction of the Bar-Boljari Highway, that is, the Podgorica-Mateševo priority section, which will once open, take half an hour from the Capital of Podgorica, or 45 minutes from the Podgorica Airport, to the Bjelasica ski resorts. Construction of the highway, which will be completed soon, will provide excellent connectivity with the region.
Kolašin at half an hour’s drive!
We must not neglect the fact that guests coming from distant markets during their stay in our country mainly use excursion programs while touring the whole country. This will be the fastest and at the same time, the most beautiful way to connect the mountain with the sea, hence our residents and tourists will have the great privilege to breathe the fresh mountain air and enjoy the magic of the Adriatic in a single day. Tourists will be able to reach the ski center in Kolašin within half an hour from the capital city. Completion of the construction of the highway will be the turning point in the development of Montenegrin tourism, for both – transport and market connection, as well as for more intense economic development of Montenegro and the region.
Awakening of the north
Montenegrin entrepreneurs from the north are already recognizing the future benefits, so there has been an increase in the number of accommodation capacities and an increase in the complete tourist offer.
